(Ferris, Stephen J. American 1835-1915). GIRL WITH DOLLS. Etching and drypoint, 1883, by Ferris after a painting by Charles D. Weldon (American 1855-1935). 20 x 28 inches; 510 x 725 mm., plus wide margins. Signed in pencil by both Weldon and Ferris, and with a remarque in the lower margin of a woman with an umbrella. With the name of the publisher Klackner, New York, and the date 1883 printed in the margin below the image. One or two unobtrusive spots of foxing in the margin, else a very good impression of this magnificent example of reproductive etching. Weldon lived in Japan, and painted Japanese subjects; Ferris was one of the leaders of the American etching revival in the 1880s, and one of the most prominent practitioners of reproducing paintings via the medium of etching.
